SAN CARLOS, Calif — December 8, 2011 — As one of the pioneers of information technology, LexisNexis has earned its reputation as an innovator that only works with best-in-class solutions. After careful consideration, the company picked MarkLogic® Corporation, the company empowering organizations to make high stakes decisions on Big Data in real time, to power components of the new platform behind Lexis Advance, the next generation legal research solution.
As a company that has traditionally built its technology solutions from the ground up, LexisNexis chose MarkLogic because it offers cutting edge features and agility which allow the company to continue developing future products for years. The technology transformation enables LexisNexis to devote more resources to innovation and invention. With unrivaled speed-to-market, new features can be developed in mere weeks and maintenance of the new platform is a fraction of competitors.
“When we started building the next generation of our product, we were at a crossroads at whether we should build our own solution or use a commercial product,” said Jerry Barton, vice president of global product development, LexisNexis. “There aren’t many options when you’re looking for a commercial solution that can help store, search, analyze, and transform more than a billion documents. MarkLogic is a cutting edge technology which enables the LexisNexis development team to spend more resources building products and features and less time and money maintaining a technology platform. This focus on the applications is driving our customer satisfaction and is a critical component of our continued growth at LexisNexis.”
LexisNexis is leading the charge in 21st century technology trends with the new platform. These trends include:
“LexisNexis is a name that’s synonymous with innovation,” said Ken Bado, president and CEO, MarkLogic. “The company’s first technology platform led the market for more than three decades, and MarkLogic is proud to be at the core of the next major technological era for this pioneering company. MarkLogic is the best technology available today that can offer the mission-critical, enterprise features and functionality LexisNexis needed to build Big Data applications for its customers.”
Lexis Advance serves primary users of online legal research such as associates at law firms and staff attorneys at corporations and in government. Other applications utilizing the new technology platform include Lexis Advance for Solos, TotalPatent, Verdict & Settlement Analyzer, Litigation Profile Suite, and CourtLink.
